School of Computer & Information Sciences (SCIS) - University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad, was started in 1983 under the School of Mathematics and Computer/Information Sciences.
Later, Computer and Information Sciences carved out as a separate department under the School of Mathematics and Computer/Information Sciences on March 23, 1993. This department became School of Computer and Information Sciences on 22nd January 2013.
The department run courses as per the norms & affiliating conditions under the University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad. It is recognized & approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi.
The school offers high-quality postgraduate teaching and research in all major areas of Computer and Information Sciences, Artificial Intelligence, and, Banking Technology and Information Security.
SCIS is a perfect example of excellence in all major functions associated with higher learning such as teaching, research, student development and curriculum planning.
The strengths of the school are its quality faculty, innovative and flexible curricula with their unique focus on post-graduate education, state-of-the-art research with a remarkably high number of Ph.D. scholars - both ongoing and recently graduated, and highly open and transparent policies that foster a healthy student-faculty interaction.
SCIS always stood for innovation and leadership in curriculum planning - having one of the oldest (from 1983) and even now one of the best MCA programmes; boldly proposing and introducing the M.Tech programme in Artificial Intelligence in 1986 to attract the small but growing number of undergraduates in Computer Science.
Later in 2002, introducing the unique M.Tech in Information Technology (with specialization in Banking Technology and Information Security) in collaboration with IDRBT (Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology, a sister Institute of RBI) aimed at bridging the shortfall of trained computer professionals in banking and finance industries.
The School has a very vibrant Ph.D. programme with more than 50 registered students as on date and more than 100 scholars have completed their research till now.
As the School always has a high priority for research, it strongly encourages fresh and brilliant students to participate in the above exciting research programmes as full-time/part-time Ph.D. students. School also offers Visvesvaraya Ph.D. Fellowships (sponsored by DeitY) for supporting brilliant Ph.D. students.
At present, the school offers five different programmes of study leading to Ph.D. in Computer Science, five years Integrated M.Tech. in Computer Science, M.Tech. (Computer Science), M.Tech. (Artificial Intelligence), M.Tech. (Information Technology) with specialization in Banking Technology & Information Security, in collaboration with IDRBT and M.C.A.
In addition, the school also contributes and supports the M.Tech. (Computational Techniques) of School of Physics, five years Integrated M.A. and M.Sc. courses.
Admissions to MCA, Ph.D. courses is through the common entrance test conducted by the University of Hyderabad. Whereas admissions to M.Tech Programme is through GATE Score.
